In the all-important kitchen triangle, the sink area is an indispensable piece of the puzzle. This is where you do the dishes and where you can dispose of leftovers from the cooking process. Within this area alone, there are a number of key elements; you will need a sink, taps, and a dishwasher but many people often forget about the backsplash. This is the area behind your sink that protects your wall from water and accidental spills. If you are not sure what a backsplash is, all you need to do is to take quick tour of a reputable kitchen showroom.
Aside from keeping your kitchen wall safe from stains and water damage, your backsplash can also play an important role as a key aesthetic element in your kitchen.Backsplashes come in a wide array of materials, designs and colors so you can pick one that suits your kitchen. In terms of color, it would be a good idea to match the color of your backsplash with other visible elements in your kitchen such as your cupboards or your walls. Alternatively, if you have a lot of stainless steel elements in your kitchen, you can also opt for a metallic backsplash to give your kitchen a modern and edgy look. If you have already visited a kitchen showroom, then you will already have an idea of what popular backsplash arrangements look like.
Once you have chosen a color for your backsplash, you can move on to choosing the materials you can use. Most people use ceramic tiles for backsplashes but there are many more options to choose from. You can use treated wood, laminates, glass, or even metal sheets for your backsplash. Just keep in mind that your backsplash should be functional, durable, as well as aesthetically pleasing.
